Choose How the Bar Communicates With You
That’s why the bar has created a new communications tool to help you sort through some of the clutter. Just log in to your account at www.osbar.org and click on the “Communications Preferences” tab in the left-hand column. From there you can choose which bar communications you wish to receive and how you wish to receive them. Do you want Bar News e-mails sent to your home e-mail address? You can do that. Would you prefer to have section list serve comments sent in digest form? You can do that too. And you can change your preferences at any time.
While you may opt out of some communications, you cannot opt out of regulatory messages that could affect your membership status. Also, note that outside groups may have access to our mailing lists, but they do not have access to the member preferences. Because of this, you might still receive unwanted communications from outside groups.
